John Edward Masefield, OM, (1878-1967) was an English poet, writer, and Poet Laureate from 1930 until his death. He is remembered as the author of the classic children's novels The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights. By the age of 24, Masefield's poems were being published in periodicals and his first collected works, Salt-Water Ballads was published in 1902. Masefield then wrote two novels, Captain Margaret (1908) and Multitude and Solitude (1909). In 1911, after a long drought of poem writing, he composed The Everlasting Mercy (1911). When World War I began Masefield went to the Western Front as a medical orderly, later publishing his own account of his experiences. In 1921, Masefield received an Honorary Doctorate of Literature from Oxford University. He also wrote a very large number of dramatic pieces. Most of his dramas were based on themes of Christianity. Amongst his other works are Martin Hyde: The Duke's Messenger (1910), Jim Davis (1911) and Right Royal (1920).

About the Author:

John Masefield was a well-known English poet and novelist. After boarding school, Masefield took to a life at sea where he picked up many stories, which influenced his decision to become a writer. Upon returning to England after finding work in New York City, Masefield began publishing his poetry in periodicals, and then eventually in collections. In 1915, Masefield joined the Allied forces in France and served in a British army hospital there, despite being old enough to be exempt from military service. After a brief service, Masefield returned to Britain and was sent overseas to the United States to research the American opinion on the war. This trip encouraged him to write his book Gallipoli, which dealt with the failed Allied attacks in the Dardanelles, as a means of negating German propaganda in the Americas. Masefield continued to publish throughout his life and was appointed as Poet Laureate in 1930. Masefield died in 1967 the age of 88.
